About Us

Mandate & Vision


The Canada Media Fund (CMF) fosters, promotes, develops and finances the production of Canadian content and relevant applications for all audiovisual media platforms.

The CMF receives financial contributions from the Government of Canada and Canada’s cable, satellite and IPTV distributors.



The CMF guides Canadian content towards a competitive global environment through fostering industry innovation, rewarding success, enabling a diversity of voice and promoting access to content through industry and private sector partnerships.


A world where Canada’s talent and stories transcend platforms and borders, triggering emotion, innovation and ideas.



Funding Model

The Canada Media Fund (CMF) delivers financial support to the Canadian television and digital media industries through two streams of funding.

The Experimental Stream encourages the development of innovative, interactive digital media content and software applications.

The Convergent Stream supports the creation of convergent television and digital media content for consumption by Canadians anytime, anywhere.


Diversity at the CMF is about recognizing, respecting and valuing the diverse talents of our team members and leveraging that diversity to deliver the best possible support to Canada’s audiovisual industry. We foster a fair and equitable environment that embraces different ideas, perspectives and experiences.

Our success depends on reflecting and embracing Canada’s wealth of diversity. We are determined to be a place where our team members, clients and stakeholders feel comfortable and supported in all their diversity, and where they can develop to their full potential regardless of background or personal circumstances.
